THE FUTURE OF OAKURA
Wairau Estate

Nestled beneath the Kaitake Ranges lies an exciting vision for the future of Oakura. A staged, long-term urban development plan created by top local experts. Wairau Estate emphasises environmental regeneration, modern lifestyles and community values.

OUR VISION

The Future of Oakura

The Wairau Estate urban development plan offers many benefits to the Oakura community. Our vision encapsulates unparalleled lifestyle options, an environmental plan with a QEII covenant, infrastructure and public traffic improvements, an equestrian park and much more.

Based on the historic uptake of new sections for residential development at Oakura, the Wairau Estate vision represents a 30-40 year (inter-generational) development plan for the area. Following a lengthy period of detailed technical investigation and assessment of the 58ha site we are now ready to introduce the Wairau Estate urban development plan to the public.

This website has been created for the purpose of providing information to the residents of Oakura about the Wairau Estate proposal prior to the lodgement of a Private Plan Change Request with the New Plymouth District Council pursuant to the Resource Management Act 1991
